Town of Poestenkill residents may drop off residential
household garbage and recyclables to the Waste Management Transfer Station at
the corner of NY 66 and NY 351 from 7 AM to 10AM every Monday and Friday.
Only Poestenkill Town are eligible for this service and may
bring their household garbage and recyclables to the facility in any 30 gallon
plastic bag. The fee is $3 per bag for
garbage and recyclables. No cash is accepted
at the facility therefore payment must be by check or credit card. Residents who bring their garbage on a regular basis are
encouraged to share their thoughts with the town on how payments can be made as
convenient as possible.
Recyclables include glass, paper, cardboard, plastic bottles and jars, and cans. No waste oil, electronics or liquids are
accepted. Remover your recyclables from the 30 gallon bags and put the bag in the household garbage container. See News for a full listing of what may not be recycled.
Four times a year next on January 5, 2019, from 9AM until Noon, the transfer station will accept bulk items such as couches
and mattresses for a fee of $20. On the
same day the facility will accept white goods such as refrigerators, air
conditioners freezers, ranges, stoves, washing machines, and dryers for a fee
of $30. Waste Management will be
responsible for extracting and recovering the coolant from this equipment. Do not break refrigeration equipment since
freon is a global warming gas and is destructive to the ozone layer.
